Orquesta Típica Tangarte is an Argentinean-Swedish tango orchestra, founded in 1999 in Malmö, Sweden. The orchestra’s music is the tango from Rio de la Plata, a repertoire with a great variety from the 1940’s and -50’s up to this date. Well-known composers like Villoldo, Canaro, Fresedo, Di Sarli, Troilo, Pugliese and Piazzolla, to mention a few, are part of this repertoire. The music is primarily played for dancing; for people to meet in the embrace of the tango and to be carried away by the music. But with this wide range of music, the programme is also suitable for concert performances. Tangarte often work together with the dancer Marcela Troncoso, who can teach to dance as well as perform. The orchestra has during the years performed at various festivals in Scandinavia, parts of Europe and South America. Main events include the World Tango Summits (Cumbre Mundial del Tango) in Rosario/Argentina (2001), Sevilla/Spain (2005), Valparaiso/Chile (2007) and Bariloche/Argentina (2009) as well as Tarbes Tango Festival/France (2005), CITA Buenos Aires (2009), Salamanca, Granada and Almería in Spain, Tango del Norte and Copenhagen Jazz Festival in Copenhagen/Denmark, Loewesaal Berlin/Germany, Faces Etno Festival and Tyrväntö Tango Festival/Finland. TV appearances in TV NDR/Germany, TV4 Sweden. Orquesta Típica Tangarte regularly invite great guest musicians, singers and dancers such as bandoneon players Luis Stazo (Sexteto Mayor), Victor Villena, Carlos Buono, Carlos Quilici, Paolo Russo, Santiago Cimadevilla, Claudio Constantini och Marcelo Mercadante, and singers Elizabeth Figueroa and Patricia Nora. The latest record is ”Lo que vendrá” (monophon Sweden, 2007).
